Cheese Profile: Feta

Feta cheese is one of the world’s most useful cheeses; few savory dishes cannot be improved by a sprinkling of salty, tangy, creamy white feta crumbles. Leafy green salads of all types are brought to new heights with the addition of cubes of rich, flavorful feta, and the cheese makes an excellent garnish for dishes made with beans, lentils, or grains of any kind. Use the irresistible zip of feta to perk up a creamy spinach dip with garlic and dill and watch those carrot sticks disappear! Feta is also delicious when added to potato and pasta salads with lots of fresh parsley and lemon.

  • Feta originated as a way for shepherds to preserve the milk from their flocks of sheep.
  • The name “Feta” is derived from Italian fetta, or slice, which refers to the cutting of the cheese to place in barrels for brining.
  • The cheese preparation described in Homer's Odyssey is thought to be the ancestor of feta cheese.
  • Feta became widely popular in the 20th century when Greeks immigration increased to Australia, the U.S., Canada, and Germany.
